 "Shaffer exudes the grandeur of the golden eras of American music, not just in sound and style, but in looks and persona as well.  In many ways you might say she was born 50 years too late, but the past’s loss is truly the present’s gain.  Laura Shaffer is refreshingly ours to enjoy right now.”

Singer/recording artist Laura Shaffer was born and raised in the Entertainment Capital of The World, and started performing professionally on the world famous Las Vegas Strip when she was still a teenager.  Honing her skills early in the public arena as a second-generation Las Vegas performer, she continues to appear at its hotels and live music venues: The Wynn, The Cosmopolitan, The Mandarin Oriental, Aria, Tuscany, Palazzo, etc.; as well as popular off-Strip megaresorts such as The Hard Rock Hotel and Red Rock Casino.  She's opened for Tony Bennett, Bob Newhart, and Donny and Marie.  She performs repeatedly to sold-out audiences at Las Vegas' spectacular world class performing arts venue, The Smith Center, and was broadcast around the globe by Yamaha to their elite subscribers.  She has entertained such diverse celebrity clientele as All-Star quarterback Drew Bledsoe and Grammy and Oscar nominated tenor Andrea Bocelli at their own private parties, and was chosen as the single performer to represent Las Vegas by Anthony Bourdain in his Emmy-winning CNN show Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.  Whether high-profile dazzle or low-key and intimate, sharing the unique pleasure that music brings is her passion.

Having garnered an international fan base with her glamorous vintage look and her sultry take on the great jazz, torch, and swing standards, she also performs limited engagements nationally and internationally, as well as for gala events, celebrity launches, and heads of state.  From showrooms to ballrooms to nightclubs, from small combo to production show, the “Noir Nightingale” enthralls with the glamour and allure of Golden Era Hollywood and the dazzle of Vintage Vegas, combined with a warm and engaging vocal style.  She is currently in production with a follow-up album to her CD "Julie London Songbook", and has released a series of classic pin-up posters culminating is a 2015 calendar.  You can also find Laura at:
